IPA's Project Research Division provides brief updates on nine ongoing research initiatives. Current studies are focused on rising owner's cost in the oil & gas industry, Gulf of Mexico decommissioning activities, achieiving better project outcomes in West Africa, and more.

The current oil & gas capital investment landscape is less forgiving than in the past, forcing many E&P operators to cancel or recycle projects. Why is this, and what can companies do to reverse the trend?

IPA has generated benchmarks for sustaining capital allocation to mining, minerals, and metals sites. Although this research study is now complete, it remains open to new participants.

How can pipeline projects achieve faster line pipe procurement durations and lower costs? IPA is forming a research study to identify Best Practices.

A large number of projects have been announced in the U.S. that have the potential to strain the capabilities of the supply chain. IPA recently completed a research study exploring the historical effects of a strained supply chain on large capital projects, the outlook for the coming market, and how to avoid the pitfalls and dangers associated with a stretched supply chain.
